Steampunk Teapot Luminary

Hello – so glad you have time to visit me today.

I want to show you the project I just entered in Dreaming Tree Summer Challenge – the Steampunk Teapot Luminary:

For this project I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Peacock, Peach, Grapefruit, Black and Grass along with patterned paper from Graphic 45 “Imagine”, gold vellum, gold pearl paper and printable vellum.

The project consists of several Dreaming Tree files.

The Teapot itself is from the Cozy Kitchen SVG Bundle. I removed the patterned on the front of the pot and added the clock and gears instead using several techniques on my Silhouette Cameo like (un)grouping, welding etc.

The top and bottom in Peacock are embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder with cogs and gears and then I rubbed some Opal Magic Wax in Turquoise Satin from Prima on them.

The Clock is from Dogwood Mantle Clock from the Making Time SVG Bundle. I used only the clock itself and added some gold vellum behind it. As my clock work is too large to be hidden behind the black clock face, I decided to put in a piece of cardstock to block the light from within in the middle to make it look a lot better. The light still shines through the outer golden rim.

On the back of the teapot, I put in the hatch from the clock for easy access to the light source and to change the battery in the clock.

The cogs and gears are from the Tick Tock Clock from the Making Time SVG Bundle and I used only these. They are made larger or smaller to fit my needs and I put gold vellum underneath where I’d made holes for the light to shine through.

The Butterfly is from the Butterfly Paper Sculpture from the Paper Sculptures SVG Bundle and I switched out the flowers on the wings with cogs and used a piece of printable vellum to add a transparent ombre color scheme.

Finally I made lots of small and larger roses from the Floral Arrangement from the Alluring Florals SVG Bundle. I rubbed the edges of the ones in cardstock with Aged Brass Metallique Wax from Prima and added gold glitter to all of them including some on the leaves as well – oh and on the butterfly too 😉

Lastly I decorated the whole project with different cogs and gears from Tim Holtz along with several trinkets from my stash.

This was such a fun project to make – from getting the idea (I was inspired of the darling teapot clock on the Graphic 45 paper) to finally executing the whole thing. I just love when an idea succeeds 🙂
